Frequently Asked Questions

Why express lanes can be used for free?

Typically High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) express lanes allow cars with 2, 3 or more people to travel toll-free. Check express lanes rules specific for your commute.

Do commuters have to commute at a specific time and from/to specific locations?

No. Commuters offer/request or join/accept rides with time and locations that work best for their specific commute. The most frequently our commuters start the morning commute from a commuter park&ride lot to their office building and commute backward in the afternoon.

Do commuters have to use Sameride every day or every commute?

No. Commuters don’t have to commit to sharing commute every time. The commitments are only for rides that the commuter has offered/requested or joined/accepted. Commuters can cancel their commitment for the coming ride anytime. Just be mindful of the fellow commuters who can be affected.
